Among the distinguished guests were Dr. Bergman Padilla, president of the UCC; Dr. Julio Montiel, vice chancellor of the UCC; and engineer Mr. Agustín Jarquín Anaya.

After a prayer was offered by Rev. Jorge de Oliveira, a representative of UPF-Nicaragua, Dr. Ivania Toruño, former minister of the family of Nicaragua, spoke about the challenges of education.

Then Pastor Wendy Puerto spoke about the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
